TrekToday has posted an interesting story were Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard) reveals that had it been up to the Next Generation cast, they would have appeared in one final Star Trek film.
Stewart said that a story idea for such a final film already existed, developed by Brent Spiner (Data) and Nemesis screenwriter John Logan. "It would have brought all the Captains and all the principal casts together into one movie. It would have been a winner, but the studio decided that that was it," he said. "It wasn't that they weren't making money from the franchise, it was they weren't making enough money to justify the spend on that size of project. [...] Their phrase was ‘franchise fatigue'. They weren't interested, and so our movies came to an end."
However reports continue to pop up about how producer Rick Berman does indeed want to do another Trek movie, however all indications seem to be, if another movie were to come about, it would not include the Next Gen cast.
